Slow down, you crazy child
you're so ambitious for a juvenile
But then if you're so smart, tell me
Why are you still so afraid?

Where's the fire, what's the hurry about?
You'd better cool it off before you burn it out
You've got so much to do and
Only so many hours in a day

But you know that when the truth is told..
That you can get what you want or you can just get old
You're gonna kick off before you even
Get halfway through
When will you realize, Vienna waits for you?

Slow down, you're doing fine
You can't be everything you want to be
Before your time
Although it's so romantic on the borderline tonight
Too bad but it's the life you lead
you're so ahead of yourself that you forgot what you need
Though you can see when you're wrong, you know
You can't always see when you're right. you're right

You've got your passion, you've got your pride
but don't you know that only fools are satisfied?
Dream on, but don't imagine they'll all come true
When will you realize, Vienna waits for you?

Slow down, you crazy child
and take the phone off the hook and disappear for awhile
it's all right, you can afford to lose a day or two
When will you realize,..Vienna waits for you?

And you know that when the truth is told
that you can get what you want or you can just get old
You're gonna kick off before you even get half way through
Why don't you realize, Vienna waits for you?
When will you realize, Vienna waits for you?

"Much like Sweetest Day and Love Day, National High Five Day has its roots in the culture industry's imperial desire to sell candy and cute teddy bears to passive consumers through guilt and obligation, all built upon the U.S. exploitation of workers in third world countries, laboring under despicable conditions for minimal pay. NOT! You wish you had another holiday to get mad about. Instead, National High Five Day was simply founded by a slew of college students who knew one important thing: hi-fives are fucking sweet. Of course, everyone knows this. Your best friend knows it. Your biology teacher knows it. Putty knows it. What's sweeter than a hi-five? Nothing."
